Race 1 // 11:50 am ET // claiming // 6 furlongs
#4 Gran Casique (9-2 ML)
Gulfstream Park shipper shows up in the high-percentage Orlando Noda barn and lures Irad Ortiz Jr. for his first NYRA try. Gets plenty of pace to track. Win bet.
Race 8 // 3:14 pm ET // allowance // 6 furlongs
#4 Risk Profile (5-1 ML)
With 2-5 morning line favorite Happy Medium taking all the money, this one will be an overlay price after troubled starts in his last two. He’ll need some pace help with the favorite up front in order to finish late, but the price will be right. Win bet.
Race 7 // 6:30 pm ET // optional claiming // 5 furlongs (turf)
#8 Too Late (7-2 ML)
Just missed in Del Mar turf sprints by a neck and half-length in his last 2 local tries at the trip, but his form has been darkened by poor dirt efforts. Can sit outside the speed from this post and pounce. Win bet.
